I have the edition of the book from 2002 and I'm pretty sure that thi one is even greater. Very good textbook that I recommend to students in psychology, psychiatry, sociology, anthropology, and biology. Very useful, with rich bibliography, plenty of illustrations, examples, graphics and good explanations.
